I’m resting my face in the comfortable bluish white glow of my laptop
Staring at the screen as my friends parade by with a wild array of emotions.
I see a link one has posted and I click to see what interests them
The pictures move me to wellies, but that’s not the only reason I weep.
You see, I’m grateful in my heart and spirit for so many things
That I can’t contain the joy, the peace, the beauty that is my soul song.
The band of merry-makers parades down my cheeks in a wild array of emotions
Displaying colors and words of excitement, glee, hope, and cherished gratitude.
I can carry my banner with the honor to my mother and dad whom I love dearly.
I can tip my top hat in celebration of those beautiful souls that orbit their light
With belief that the Universe knows, heeds, and believes back.
I wipe the tears away but my heart is so full, I keep leaking happies and joy.
If you hold out your hand and take mine. If you trust yourself to believe,
I can entrust a part of me to you and you to me that together we’ll go far as can be
And then we’ll jump even farther, travel the world of possibilities, explore new lands
Oh the stories of love and adventure we’ll bring home from the farthest reaches.
Which will only encourage others to parade around with their own banners
Declaring openly their wide array of emotions all born from the nurturing love of an idea.
